Celebrate This Week: Pure Celebration

 Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres.

When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build. 

   A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember.

After two months of dual celebrations (Slice of Life in March and National Poetry Month in April), I'm happy that today I can have a simple celebration with no other motives tucked into my post.  (Warning:  This post includes numerous grandson pics.)    
  • I loved attending church on Sunday with both grandsons (in matching outfits) and their parents.
  • Teddy and I enjoyed an outing to the outlet mall and his first visit to Scott's Dairy Freeze (one of Dad's favorite spots).  On our return drive, Teddy resolutely worked on taking off one shoe and one sock (much to Grandma's delight).  Teddy loves his new musical toy from the Graham family.  And he loves books!   We missed this boy when he left on Monday to attend Aunt Amy's graduation in Utah.  He (and Mom and Dad) come back tonight for a quick overnight before returning home on Sunday.  
  • I finished my first week on granny nanny duty with grandson Jack!  My daughter went back to work three days a week and I get to spend those days with this precious bundle of joy.  I'd forgotten how busy one little person can keep you.  It's a good day if I can accomplish one thing other than keeping Jack fed, clothed, diapered, read to, sung to, and happy.  That's okay.  We're too busy making precious memories to worry about Grandma's "to-to" list.  

  • I'm loving the signs of spring that surround us.  

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. This just makes me smile! Yes, these are precious memories!

  2. Love your week of granny duty...those days will be coming soon. Love the beauty of the flowers.

  3. I had to grin when I got to "granny nanny duty" ... love your pictures.

  4. So much joy in this post, Ramona - what a blessing to have such beautiful grandchildren to enjoy!

  5. So happy to see these pictures and read the happy words and feel part of the celebration!

  6. Ramona, I love your photo gallery of grandsons and how handsome they look in matching outfits. I will take my cue from you that to do lists go out the window when with family. Your sign of spring from Washington (the floral) will grace my spring gallery and I hope you send me more.
